This tutorial explains how to change the remote repository for an existing local repository
This will be used once you migrated the repository from different repositories such as GitHub, GitLab, and bitbucket.
Following are the steps required to change the GitHub remote repository.
One way using the command line
First, run the git remote -v command on an existing repository
B:\myproject>git remote -v origin <https://github.com/user/gitrepo.git> (fetch) origin <https://github.com/user/gitrepo.git> (push)
It points to the GitHub remote repository
origin is a remote repository
B:\myproject>git remote set-url origin https://gitlab.com/user/gitlabrepo.git
B:\mygitrepo>git remote -v origin <https://gitlab.com/user/gitlabrepo.git> (fetch) origin <https://gitlab.com/user/gitlabrepo.git> (push)
Another way using .git/config folder
.git/configin a text editor
[remote "origin"] url = https://github.com/user/gitrepo.git
Change url to the new remote repository
[remote "origin"] url = https://gitlab.com/user/mygitrepo.git
To change the local repository from GitLab to GitHub
git remote -vcommand in the Local repository
git remote set-url origin newurlcommand
This is a similar way to change local repository from GitHub to GitLab
